August 15

“Such confidence we have through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.” 2 Corinthians 3:4-5 (NIV)

Among the lessons which we as Christians should learn is how dependent we are upon God. Paul, in writing to the Corinthians, tells them that he was learning this lesson. He was a very intelligent and capable man and he had received a good education. But he did not depend on any of his own personal abilities. He recognized that it was God who was producing the results. So it is with us. We may have various personal abilities but they are of real value only if God is working through us. Let us depend not on our abilities, but on God’s presence and His working in and through us
